Welcome to Sound Read Six - Where new music comes to you.
Dream Of The World
Cold Star Media
The Mancunian synthwave celebration continues with their very own Richard Evans. Back on his keyboards and computers, the juxtaposition of nostalgic space music and the magic of modern technology gives flight to this sonic songbird of sound. Dream Of The World EP presents the talented Evans in a setting that feels at home with the previous Sentinel plus an extension on the side. As we explore the new spaciousness and decorative intent, the title-track makes its way forward as the feature today. The British-Irish musician cut his teeth as the keyboard player in the popular rock band James before embarking on his own compositional creativity. No stranger to music, before turning his hand to electronics and synthesisers, Richard Evans played guitar and wrote songs for St Vitus Dancers. Inspired by artists like The Pet Shop Boys, Vangelis, Jean-Michel Jarre, and New Order, themes of the future of humanity in a technological world reinvent the 80s.
Strange, harmonised tones ring out in a progressive melody. New sonics join in with amplitudes and tone wavering in the abstract ambience. Whisks of synthesiser sweep the sounds into novel dimensions as the flow of notes and styles of wave merge in spacious and rich rooms. The vocal begins, Richard Evans adds a dreamy robotic edge to the human and introspective muse on the imagination. A series of musical breaks and rises keep the track moving through kinetic segments of transition as the vocal portrays a constancy among the reverse entropy. Richard Evans’ Dream Of The World conjures images of losing our sense of metaphor in favour of raw data via dystopian and designer realities.
